Lindsay Lohan Gets A New Bodyguard After Some Dude Knocked on Her Door

Man, Lindsay Lohan just can’t catch a break, huh? Or, depending on how you look at it, she’s caught every break possible, and quite a few that shouldn’t have been. Either way, there’s some brand new drama surrounding our girl Lindsay in the form of some guy knocking on her door:

Cops were called to Lindsay Lohan’s Venice Beach pad earlier this evening — after a strange, unidentified man came a-knockin’ … and Lindsay freaked the hell out.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, the man — an older gentleman — arrived at her home around 6:30pm and began knocking on the front door.

We’re told Lindsay came to the door and asked what he wanted — and the man responded cryptically … that he needed to speak with her.

Unnerved, Lindsay asked the man to leave, but he refused, demanding she open the door. Police received a call minutes later about a trespasser on Lindsay’s property. It’s unclear if Lindsay made the call.

According to law enforcement sources, cops showed up soon after and arrested the man for trespassing. The man is currently being booked.

Ok, I get it. If I had the guys who knock on Lindsay’s door knocking on mine, I’d call the cops too, but that’s just me. I almost called the cops because somebody was knocking for too long on my neighbor’s door and it was making me nervous. Other people, people with more courage and less meth, might have just answered the door. But not Lindsay and me. No, people like Lindsay and me would call the cops and then hire people to hang out with us 24 hours a day:

Sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ, the actress loves her Venice Beach house … but with random scary people walking right up to her front door, she’s convinced it’s time to invest in some extra security upgrades for the property.

On top of adding additional security cameras — we’re told Lindsay wants to hire a full-time bodyguard to stay with her for a period of time … until she feels safe again.

As it turns out, the fella who was knocking on Lindsay’s door was actually a good buddy of one of Lindsay’s stalkers, and he just wanted to take some time to “explain some things.” So, actually, good job, Lindsay! Way to get the year started off with some good judgement!

But you guys know that we can’t let Lindsay off that easy. See, Celebitchy has a theory that what really happened is that one of Lindsay’s dealers came to get paid, and Lindsay didn’t want to give up any of that Playboy money, so she called the cops. The bodyguard is there, of course, to keep up appearances and to scare away any other drug dealers looking for what they’re owed. I like this story much better than that old “stalker’s BFF tries to break through to Lindsay” angle, don’t you?

Oh, and speaking of Playboy, would you like to hear one of Lindsay’s quotes from 2005?

“You will never see me in a nude scene. Then there’s no mystery for my private life. I don’t think that’s what’s needed to win an Oscar for me.”

Lindsay!  What’s this “mystery” you speak of?  The only person who hasn’t seen your cooch is 50 Cent! Crazy girl!
